to president obama. he himself said, himself said, that he will, you know, he thinks two weeks really isn't adequate to do this thing correctly. let's just raise taxes. i mean the president himself is, he is a 40%. and he is a leader who is obviously not interested in reaching the conclusion before the end of this year. we're looking at some really, really sat efforts on the part of this white house and some outrage just demands and ultimatum. by the way i think the president has claimed this fiscal cliff for his own and i don't like quite understand why the national liberal media insists upon talking about, for example, 53% of those surveyed say it is going to be the republicans fault. that is inanity. shows you level of ignorance what is happening in washington, d.c. this president set an ultimatum. his solution will be determining what happens on the 1st of january, 2013 whether we go over the cliff or not. he added to this already difficult task, national debt ceiling. i mean, this is a man looking for a fight. he is man who has found it. i'm sorry? melissa: more spending. he slapped
with congressional leaders started a few weeks ago really with president obama calling for that $1.6 trillion in additional tax revenue over 10 years that you just heard about from john boehner. treasury secretary tim geithner argues that you can not raise enough revenue to reduce the deficit by only doing the loopholes and the tax breaks. and that is the major priority for republicans in this but some senior republican aides said they believe along with spending cuts, compromise would generate about a trillion dollars in new tax revenue, possibly from in parting those tax deductions. bill: where do we go, huh, martha? martha: good question. bill: congressman that broke ranks on one item is with us in 25 minutes. today he has a strong message directed at the white house and president obama. congressman tom colatosti out of oklahoma a bit later here on "america's newsroom.". that is 22 minutes away. martha: we brought you this breaking news on friday and now there's new fallout from that horrible train derailment in new jersey. remember these pictures? emergency officials closed schools now in

report." >>> been a little over a week since he met with president obama to talk about avoiding the fiscal cliff and caterpillar's ceo joins us from the nyse to talk about the fix the debt campaign and more. you know anything we don't know, doug, that you can tell us about how this finally looks and whether we do it? >> i don't know if i know any more than you do or not, joe, but we've all been working hard to impress upon our leadership in washington how important this is not to go over the cliff. we had good sessions with republican leadership, democratic leaderships and with president obama in the white house. nobody over there wants to go over the cliff at this time, there's nothing that wants to do it. >> once we get over it, we hope it's a bridge to something that will help you and caterpillar compete better in the world. after the cliff, what do you want? is there any emphasis on corporate tax reform that we need or how to bring $2 trillion back to this country? aren't those things, did you talk about any of those or the cliff? >> we talked about all of those, long-term c
for not 52 weeks but one week alone. the tax increases that president obama is now trying to push through will really do almost nothing to reduce our national deficit and nothing to reduce our national debt. the white house and democrats in the senate are focused only on tax hikes while they continue ignoring the real drivers of our debt, which is the out-of-control entitlement programs -- social security, medicare, and medicaid. until we find a way to do meaningful entitlement reform, no amount of tax revenue will be able to match the increase in violate spending. -- in entitlement spending. the president continues in his campaign mode going around the country to try to sell his tax hikes. the president and the democrats in congress are willing to go over the fiscal cliff in order to get those tax hikes. rather than negotiate in good faith, they're willing to try to spend their time trying to convince the american people that it's just someone else's fault. going over the fiscal cliff will mean another recession, and this one is squarely on the shoulders of president obama. it will mean

are going to have congressman tom cole from oklahoma who last week said in a closed-door meeting that they should agree with president obama and extend the tax cuts for middle-class americans and then fight later on for that tax cut for the wealthy. we will ask him about this latest proposal, the counterproposal from the house republicans. j.d. on twitter says -- on our republican , richard from colorado springs, colorado. caller: c-span could put on actual science. i think there is a lot of magical thinking on the part of democrats here. first of all, they are assuming if they raise the taxes on this one%, it will not affect the jobs and the companies that they work for. nor would it affect the customers they have. what are the percentages of the most important job creators around? how did you identify them? they had no clue. i think the other aspect of magical thinking is that in the noise and the signal, nate silver pointed out previously a 12% rise in gdp might ake for a 2% rise in employment. in 2005, we got 3.5 million jobs lost. it is a fantasy to believe that the presiden
